Hidden Caribbean Property Hotspots : Dominica


Nubricks.com Dominica is one of the most unspoiled and underdeveloped islands in the Caribbean, with waterfalls and lush rain-forests aplenty. So, is this banana exporting nation beginning to bare fruit as a property hotspot?
Dominica is an island nation and borderless country in the Caribbean Sea, the northernmost and largest of the Windward Islands.


The island is characterized by a very rugged and rocky terrain, which makes it impossible for plantation production. However, Dominica has been a producer of coffee, cocoa, and citrus fruits throughout its history, but its biggest share of agricultural production since the 1950’s belongs to bananas.


Formerly a British colony, Dominica became independent in 1978 and remains a member of the British Commonwealth. In Latin, its name means ‘Sunday,’ which was the day on which it was discovered by Christopher Columbus.

Caribbean dreams, Del. realities

Delaware Online My family and I spent "primary week" on the rugged, verdant Caribbean island of St. Lucia. We vacationed at a beautiful bluff-top villa owned (coincidentally) by the family of Democratic State Senate candidate Dee Durham, who unfortunately lost her primary. But more about that later. Ah, St. Lucia! Clear blue waters. Spectacular sunsets. Plenty of lagoons for diving and snorkeling. Outstanding cuisine. Impeccable service. A live volcano. No TV. Perhaps most importantly, a new favorite beer: Piton, named after St. Lucia's famous "twin peaks." Just a week of sun, fun, the printed word, and family togetherness.
